12/4 Dirt Dog Run @ 8:30AM

Sunday morning at 8:30 the Dirt Dog Trail Runners will be running a 6 mile loop course from Castle Rock Park in Walnut Creek.  There will be two shorter options.  Alex will be out early marking the course and Greg will be at the start to greet and sweep.
Alex describes the course as follows: 
I ran a perfect six mile course (it will seem like more) today starting at Castle Rock Park in Walnut Creek
There is a big climb at the start, and total elevation is around 1500 feet.
The trails were all runnable and there are two options to make it shorter. I will mark both of those,  but only with one arrow and an "s" for short at the top of the trails (Fairy Lantern and Buckeye Ravine). Both these trails will take you to the Stage Road trail where I will place arrows again for the way back to the parking lot.

Driving Directions:
Exit I-680 at Ygnacio road in Walnut Creek and drive east.
After about three miles turn right on Walnut AVENUE (not Walnut Blvd)
After about two miles enter the roundabout and go right on Castle Rock Road.
Follow Castle Rock Road till the end past the horse stables, and park on the left.
